It was partially out of wanting to make "us" happy I suppose, but in retrospect if "we" really cared about Jerry I think "we" would have wished they had stopped touring so much in the 90's, which they should have done, imo, and worried more about their own health and happiness than trying to work so hard maintaining their overhead to make "us" happy. Just my opinion, anyway...

Grateful Dead Productions provided full time jobs for a crew of 40 people on the road and a staff at home in Marin county. They were paid union wages and got health care benifits too. It was expensive! So they were always on a tour. The band felt obligated to them and didn't formally dissolve this corporation until just a few years ago...
